Ancient Wisdom for a Modern Woman

# Numerology of Days

Numerology is a belief in special mystical relationship between a number and a coinciding event.

Modern numerology contains aspects of a variety of ancient cultures and teachers, including Babylonia, Pythagoras and his followers (Greece, 6th century B.C.), astrological philosophy from Hellenistic Alexandria, early Christian mysticism, early Gnostics, the Hebrew system of the Kabbalah, The Hindu Vedas, the Chinese “Circle of the Dead”, Egyptian “Book of the Masters of the Secret House” (Ritual of the Dead).

Most commonly, Numerology uses simple numbers from 1 to 9, each number bearing special meaning. However, there are systems which assign special meaning to number 11 and 23, for instance.

Numerology assigns a number not only to a date, but also to letters, therefore every name can be characterized according to a number it represents. a=1, b=2, c=3, and so on, going  to j=1, k=2, l=3 and over again. Then just sum up all the numbers in a name. Reduce the result to a one-digit number which is the Number of a Name.

To illustrate, let’s take my name. Elena. E=5, l=3, e=5, n=5, a=1. Let’s do the math: 5+3+5+5+1=19. Reducing a double digit number to one-digit: 19=1+9 = 10; 10=1+0=1. Therefore, my name number is 1. Now just refer to the meaning of the number for names. You can find the meaning of numbers in a name all around the web, here are a few: Numerology.com and What’s Your Sign.

However, I am not a big fan of Numerology for names. Instead, I resort to Numerology of Days quite often. Every important event in my life I try to schedule on a date, auspicious for me. Besides knowing my Day of Vitality and my Day of  Obstacles from Feng-Shui (to know yours, check my post Your Lucky Day), I also calculate an auspicious number of the date, making sure the meaning of the day corresponds with the purpose of my event.

For example, I try to schedule a job interview or taking a test on a Wednesday with day #8, as it’s meaning is “a power day”. This method has not failed me yet 🙂

To calculate the number of any given day, use the same math method as described above: sum up all the numbers and reduce the result to a one-digit figure.

Say, today is August 22, 2014. That is 8/22/2014. So, the math goes like this: 8+2+2+2+0+1+4=19. Reducing to one-digit: 19=1+9=20, which is again reduced to 20=2+0=2. Thus, the number of August 22, 2014 is 2.
